Took the Floibanen up at 43 NOK per person (return tickets are 85 NOK). Long queue, crowded, and the ride is less than 10 minutes, views from the train are not spectacular. There is a tourist shop on Mount Floyen that I felt was more reasonably priced than other shops by the harbour. Great view points from the summit but... More

When we went there were no cruise ships in port so it was 5 minutes wait only, but the next day there was 2 cruise ships in port the wait time was about 40 minutes, but still well worth the wait

You want find a more birdy view of a city. 27 % uphill with a funicular gives you a thrilling feeling.

This funicular is very, very efficiently run. They accommodate those with hampered mobility and those with small children very considerately. The views (rain or shine) are gorgeous.

There are also some walking trails you can do if you have some extra time. The walk down takes about 40 minutes,... More
